you think martin luther king would be saying about what has unfolded in detroit? >> well, i think obviously he would be very concerned. he would be outraged today that in america, black youth unemployment is close to 40% and real unemployment in this country is 14%. he talked about and led and moved toward that march on washington, that poor people's march at the time that he died, what he was talking about is an economy of full employment. massive investment in job creation and not just for african-americans. he was bringing together hispanics, poor whites and he was saying we have got to stand together and too often, ed, we forget about that aspect about martin luther king jr. and we simply focus on his enormously effective work in desegregating america. >> that day, what was the mood like? if you have to capture the emotion and memory about what that day was like, what would you say? >> enormous optimism, enormous excitement about the fact that so many people of all colors, of all ages came together in washington, d.c. that was unprecedented up until that point. the king speech
find ourselves feeling weaker on the ground in places like detroit and baltimore. >> there's a statistic from the urban institute that i found pretty stunning. over the past 30 years, the average white family has gone from having five times as much wealth as the average black family, to 6 1/2 times. which is to say the wealth disparity between black households and white households is accelerating. what do you -- how do you make sense of that? how do you make sense of that in the context of the racial progress that we've made in so many areas and the fact that we have the first black president? >> well, look, certainly, we have come a long way, and there's a long way to go. and the reality is that the banking industry in many instances, in too many instances, targeted the black community for really strip mining wealth in our communities, through the shenanigans that happened through the mortgage business, during the bubble. and obama started right at the beginning of that. and i think if there's frustration in the community, it's that we haven't seen really folks go to jail
